Crystal Growth Facilities

The crystal growth facilities include equipment for Bridgeman growth using gradient furnaces up to temperatures exceeding 200°C. The equipment includes: platinum, silicon carbide, and graphite element resistance furnaces; directional solidification equipment; a high frequency crystal grower; and a zone refining unit. Also available are vacuum evaporation units for epitaxial crystal growth and an arc melter for fusing refractory materials. Auxiliary facilities include a full range of high-temperature, thermal-analysis and computer-controlled calorimetric equipment.
